6 Colorful Ways to Transform Thrift Store Lamps

4 Materials
30 Minutes
You know when you have these old dated lamps which you don’t really want to throw away but you desperately want to upgradem then this post will definitely give you some inspiration.
Not only were these projects easy to do but they were so quick and made such a difference.
If you are interested in how to make these then please keep on reading.
Just by using simple wood pieces/shim you can transform that lamp into something beautiful. I placed the wood pieces into a gorgeous pattern almost like an Aztec Pattern.
It is such a quick and inexpensive DIY project.
See I am not kidding when I say that wood pieces are the perfect way to update your plain boring lamps.
This is another option as to how versatile these pieces can be and make such a difference.
Adding little touches like these Circular Wood Pieces to makeover your lamp can also be a good choice.
I painted each circle half gold and half coral and glued it onto the lampshade.
And if you want you can always hand paint a beautiful design onto your dated lamp like I did with this Ikat Chevron design.
